Belle the Ballerina

Petite Belle aka Belle is a 2007 Oldenburg mare by Patrick (Corland) out of a Thoroughbred Mare.  Melissa has been riding her since the day she was started under saddle and with the help of Trainer Susan Jaccoma, has shown all the way through 4th level.  Our goal is Prix St. George this fall.  It will be both Melissa and Belles first FEI ride down centerline and she is very excited!

Melissa has been determined to conquer 4th level before moving up even though we all know 4th is the worst.  The pair have already received scores in the upper 60’s, but would like to refine her changes and pirouettes before moving on.

We will be posting videos including training techniques they work on at home as well as some progress from the shows.
